Beaver Kills In Beaver State Lead To Lawsuit

Nov 10, 2017

Oregon is the "beaver state," but the designation does not help beavers much.  The title confers no protection, and beavers are still killed all the time. 

Some are killed by government workers, and that is the reason for a lawsuit filed by the Center for Biological Diversity and the Western Environmental Law Center

They say up to 400 beavers a year are killed as pests by federal Wildlife Services, an agency of the Department of Agriculture. 

Collette Adkins of CBD and Andrew Hawley from WELC visit with details on the program, and why they want it stopped.
